Abstract

Several papers by Wiggins (building on ideas by Boden) have outlined a view of creative concept generation as a very general search process, but that formalisation
has not been developed much in the past few years. Also, there are some aspects where clarification or spelling out of details would be useful. We present a re-formulation of the central ideas in Wiggins’s framework, with slightly more rigorous statements of the definitions and a number of minor extensions. We also explain how this framework relates to some hitherto completely separate proposals by Ritchie.
